Panoramic views, the salty sea breeze, and the calm waves of the North Sea lapping the shore – the Husum Bay is the perfect place for a cycling escape. Your bike will take you through the wide landscapes of the Hattstedtermarsch and the Südermarsch. You’ll follow the dunes for miles, passing sheep grazing peacefully, with the North Sea and the impressive Wadden Sea National Park always in view.

In this Collection, we show you eight comfortable bike routes in the Husum Bay. Varying in length from three to 19 miles (five to 30 km), the routes are flat and easy to ride, making them the perfect choice for families.

Husum and the surrounding villages of Husum Bay are the starting points for the various routes which are dedicated to a specific theme. For example, you can discover the landscapes from Theodor Storm's novellas on the Gray Horse Rider (Schimmelreiter) route, experience idyllic marsh nature on the ride into the countryside and cycle through salt marshes, marshland, forest, heath and geest, which reaches all the way to the sea, on the sea route.

Along the way, you will not only enjoy the wonderful nature of the bay, but also find cozy inns, bathing places and North Frisian villages that invite you to take a relaxing break. You can also learn more about life by the sea on interesting themed paths, nature trails and in local museums.
